Has anyone here tried running Messenger inside Apache Cocoon?
I’'d like to develop a web based interface for users of my chat server. Most of what I want to do can be done through the databse tables, but for some things I think I need to interact with the Messenger classes so I can show things like if the user is logged in via XMPP, view their roster with presence, offline messages, etc.
I understand I can build Messenger as a WAR, but I’'m not sure how I would grab a reference to the server from a different context. I think with Cocoon the best way would be to wrap Messenger as an Apache Excalibur component and have it launched when Cocoon starts.
I just started with Jabber and Jive Messenger, and I’‘m pretty excited about it. I don’‘t know if there are any other Cocoon developers here, but it seems like it’'ll make a nice combination.
